I’m giving all y’all an opportunity to cash in on my business idea. I’m not creative enough to make the product so I cannot execute. However, this is something I want which means there is a market out there! It just needs a creative hand.
Here’s the background. You know there’s this trend of British stuff. Pillows and posters etched with ‘Keep Calm and Carry On.’ Blankets and rugs with the British flag. It’s all UK, every day. It’s maddening. Dean’s British so you’ll see some of these items in our house.
What’s missing? Filipino flair. I’d like to have a cute pillow with the flag of the Philippines displayed on our couch. I’d like a mug that has a Filipino catch phrase like ‘Got Rice’ or ‘The Blacks of Asia.’ I don’t know. Something, anything. What’s great about this concept is that it can apply to all the countries in the world. Wouldn’t it be cool to go to an Etsy store, select a country like Eritrea or Peru, and purchase household items showing some allegiance to your heritage?
Can someone get on this stat, then let me know when I can buy some Filipino decor. Not a picture of the Last Supper or the big matching wooden spoon and fork, but design-worthy Filipino flair.
